Takura is looking for groups of adults or children who would like to learn to play. If you are a beginner or haven't picked up your racquet in a while and would like to get out on the courts, contact Takura at






Takura recently attended the Memphis Tennis Conference where he had opportunity to participate in break out session with leaders in the industry and interact with professionals who were playing in the ATP and WTA tournament.


He spent time with the best double players in the world, Bob and Mike Bryan. Click on the following link to hear a video message from Mike for the kids in our program:

Tennis summer camps begin the week of May 27 and are offered for 10 weeks. The last week of camp is July 29. Go to for registration information and details. Click on the CALENDAR tab to see listings of dates for each session.




Last summer,TAA offeredkid's tennis drill & games sessions during the month of June.Times were coordinated with swim team practice times so your child could go from swim team to the courts. These sessions were taught by Takura's assistant, Conor.


TAA is considering offering a similar program this summer if there is enough interest.At least 6 players for each session would be required to hold the session.Sessions would be grouped by age, not ability.


Please let us know if you would like your child to participate in this type of program this summer by sending an e-mail to by March 22. Look for results on the level of interest in the April newsletter.
